I seem to do so much better when I am taking care of someone else. Even my own doctor has said as much. Although he did remind me that a large portion of caring for others is taking care of yourself! I promised him I would do my best to do better at that on this go round than on the last! He laughed and told me he intended to hold me to that!
I do have some health issues that must be addressed daily and have a new development to deal with on the horizon. I'm not sure what that will entail, but then are we ever sure what life holds for us? I cannot just sit idly by and let life pass me up while I cower in the corner and worry about what my tomorrows may hold. That's a complete lack of faith and I refuse to walk a faithless path! The Lord has been there for me at every turn all the years of my life. I know He will not desert me now.
I've never felt more sure of my confidence in the Lord or more sure that I was doing what He wanted me to do. I have known since my very early childhood that I have a caregivers heart. God placed that heart within me because He had a mission for me. Taking care of others seems to be my personal mission field and I have to say, I totally enjoy it. From my earliest memory, I have wanted to be a nurse or a doctor. I was never physically able to do that due to my own health problems. However, as one of my nephews pointed out to me once, I've been doing it basically all of my life without the degree! I'm good with that!
So, let the new adventure begin! As that old song says "Many things about tomorrow I don't seem to understand; but I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand"! So, on I go holding to the hand of Jesus and knowing He is leading me each step of the way and carrying me when I need to be carried!
